The fire - involving what appears to be a camper van - happened at about 6.40pm on the Thetford-bound stretch of the A11 between Wymondham and Attleborough in the Silfield and Spooner Row area.

Two fire crews, one from Wymondham and one from Hethersett, were sent to the scene. Firefighters wore breathing apparatus and used hose reels to extinguish the fire.

Police also attended the incident. There were long tailbacks on the A11 following the crash.
